Bella Skiller Builder with Fat Quarter Shop - Month 7

Happy August 1st and welcome to Month 7 of the Bella Skill Builder with Fat Quarter Shop! This month we finish the very top row of our quilt too!!! I'm just loving it!!!

Keep on reading...

This month we are working on our half square triangles and quarter square triangles skills by learning another method of making these blocks!  The blocks are huge this month....24" and 20" finished!!! I'm a big block fan so this was a bonus for me!

Featured Tool

Use this Creative Grids ruler to sew together eight separate 90 degree half-square triangle units, cut ready to sew sets of triangles from strips and trim over-sized half square triangles to the correct size. You can also mark and sew 1/4" seam lines.  Check out the video below from Creative Grids.


I'm having sew much fun with the monthly Bella Skill Builder! I love that I am making some blocks for the first time and learning helpful tips to improve my sewing! Thank you Fat Quarter Shop!
I can't wait for September  1st!

Have a great week! Be sure to follow me on Instagram @mellierc for more sewing fun!
